    Why do you have to argue over who you think is the goat. Everyone has their own opinions but can we all just admire the fact that we got to see two legends play the game

    Don’t think the fans understood it was an all time pick, Pelé is unlike any other player ever and is the GOAT

  • Stefan Vrachev

    1.Maradona-magician ball controll,it was just unexplained,effective dribble(most overcome rivals per run out meters and most scored goals per number of dribbling),the mostmost injured all times player,most successful player comparing to his team-mates.To be Italy`s champion with Napoly is not like to be Spain champion with Real Madrid and Barcelona.To be a world cup winner with poor Argentina`86 is not like to be world cup winner with Brasil`58`70 like Pele.
    2.Pele-aside of discussing the differences of both styles,the abilities of Maradona is slightly better and to be world cup winner with Brasil in 50`s, 60`s and 70`s was so easy.That`s why I`m choosing Maradona.
    3.Johan Cryuff,Zinedine Zidane.
    4.Lionel Messi-to be compared to Maradona and Pele is ridiculous.It`s right to say he is better at his time.Zico wasn`t worse player than Messi.
    5.Cristiano Ronaldo.Someone could ask what he is doing here and he will be right.That 5th place is for all others Ronaldo Nazario da Lima,Romario de Sousa Faria,Ronaldihno,George Weah,Zico,Ruud van Nistelrooy,Marco van Basten,Gerd Muller,Beckenbauer,Garincha,if I`ve missed someone,please exuse me.

    In my opinion maradona is best dribbler player.
    Pele is best in WC and goalscoring player.
    Ronaldo is best goalscoring like pele.
    Messi is best dribbler like maradona and playmaker player .

    Pelé (longevity as best player, 3 WCs and 2 Club World Cup Titles) > C. Ronaldo (longevity as best player, Euro with Portugal - an inferior team compared to Brasil or Argentina, and multiple individual and club accomplishments) > Maradona (best individual WC performance ever in 1986, but a short peak as the best player in the world) > Messi (lots of club-individual accomplishments, but no National Team accomplishments).

    Everyone is shitting with the facts! The only trophy that matters more than money is the World Cup. No one has been more dominant in their respective era than Pele. No one else has ever lifted 3 World Cup trophies. The only footballer in modern era who is capable of overtaking this feat is Mbappe. Bring your arguments about Messi Penaldo and mr Cokenose and I will tear you up.

      Pele played in a stacked team that won the WC without him in 1962 when he got injured after only playing 2 group games, while Maradona single handedly dragged an average team to a WC triumph. Also football during Pele's time didn't have as much quality as it did during Maradona's era.
      Messi's my favourite player of all time but I believe Maradona is the GOAT.

  • David Blatt
    David Blatt 7 months ago

    Guess what? Messi's penalty didn't cost Argentina a single thing! Stillw ould end up second and would play Vs France. Ronaldo's penalty did cost Portugal the first place and now they will play against Uruguay and not Russia.

  • David Blatt
    David Blatt 7 months ago

    How can anyone compare these 3 with Lionel Messi the one and only? Maradona did nothing except for scoring in the finale with his hand and taking steroids. Pelè while was great. The times were different and Brazil this time shined. And Ronaldo lmfao 2 years older and still has less assists + goals. Not to mention all he does lately is staying in the box and waiting for a pass.

    What a shame... People really know nothing about football.. a person who really understands football.. would say Messi is the best.. but Ronaldo yeah he is a onee of the Best player in the world but he is not able to do what Messi can... Messi by farrr better than ronaldo..

  • Roberto Rta

    Messi= perfect ball control, perfect shooting, perfect passing and a great dribbler, no leadership
    Ronaldo= perfect ball control, perfect shooting, perfect dribbling and good header, no leadership
    Maradonna= perfect ball control, perfect shooting, perfect dribbling, perfect passing and perfect leadership
    Pelé= perfect ball control, perfect shooting, perfect dibbling, perfect passing, perfect header, good leadership
    i bet the ones who says Pelé is a fraud doest even saw an entire match of him, doesnt matter if Pelé won more world cups or not, he was the most complete player of all time, he even played as goalkeeper and won a title defending 2 penaltys shoots on a brazilian championship , for those who dont know brazilian league was one of the best at that era, imagine all brazilian players playing on national league right now...
    a man who scored 1000 goals worth thinking , take the best ones of that era, and of any era for exemple, nobody scores barely half of this number...
    -Santos Fc played against Benfica of Eusebio, Santos won with 4 gols from Pelé...( all games against european big teams of that era was kicked easily by Santos of Pelé.
    If football at that era was so easy, why nobody of that era scored at least half of Pelé goals ??
    Go study football history kids, stop playing video games and go read books and watch movies

    • Roberto Rta
      Roberto Rta 6 months ago

      yes, he has today but only on the last 2/3 years, most of his carreer he wasnt! he was a very selfish player! he grew a lot in this "area" on last years, but he's already "old" he has more 2/3 years max on this level of playing
      Maradona was a leader since very young until the end, Pelé was less leader than Maradonna, but he was a good leader since young too.
      Ronaldo no. Only became a leader after 30 years... so u cant compare this level of leadership on Ronaldo with guys like Maradona for instance...

  • Dash

    All those using Messi’s struggle to justify Ronaldo being greater than him are just exposing their insecurity. After yesterday’s game I realized how hard it is for him to even carry this team especially in a team that can’t string 4 passes to save their lives. Messi can’t do it alone, just as Ronaldo wouldn’t be anywhere if it weren’t for the team behind him. Messi is just very unlucky that he not only has to carry his nation, but also Barca for the past few years. A player like Messi is not a once in a lifetime player, He’s a player that I believe we will not see his like ever again. I am done with my hopes of him winning a world cup, because let’s face it: It most likely will probably never happen. However, as I said above he is a player whose like we will never see again, that is why he is the GOAT. Not winning a world cup. For all I care Portugal can win this world cup, and Ronaldo can win the next 10 champions leagues, he can stroke his chin with his fingers all he wants or shove them up his own ass for all I care, he and everyone else knows that he will never get close to Messi, no matter how good he is. If Messi wins a world cup, good for him, just another achievement that he accomplished. For now fuck it, I am sad that he likely won’t win it, but let’s enjoy his slaloming and all the other magic this guy does, something that truly gives me the joy that nothing else does. The joy I feel when I see his magic on a weekly basis is a special kind of joy and I will just enjoy it for the time we have left of him because let’s face it he’s already 31 and he isn’t getting younger. It is those feelings that I feel that make Messi the GOAT and no one can ever take that away from me, and it shouldn’t for anyone else of you guys. I’ve said my piece.

Copa America? I absolutely love Messi and i think he is the best club player but can't be decisive on the NT like Ronaldo can
